Dear Baby Asher,
When I accepted Christ My Life changed forever.
When I read about you mommie and daddy and about your tiny sweetness ..I haven't been the same since. I love you tiny baby. I can just imagine your tiny little hands in the hands of Jesus as you are dancing on the shores of heaven.
Dan and Casey I feel as though I know you through Christ we know each as brother and sister thank you for your strong faith and love.
In Christ

You don't know me...I have been deeply touched by your lives...I am very sorry for your loss. You and your family have been in my prayers. The number five has always been so special to me...I'm sure you know the number five stands for grace...when I read Asher's weight...5lb. 5 oz. all I could think of is Grace, Grace...God's Amazing Grace.

Dan and Casey,

Words cannot express the sorrow we feel for your loss of little Asher Daniel.

The support network you have surrounding the two of you shows what wonderful people you are, and what a positive influence you have had in the lives of others. You should be very proud.

We are making arrangements so Scott and I can attend the service on Thursday. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you, or a charity you would like us to support.

Dan and Casey,

Thank you for sharing your and baby Asher's journey with so many. I cry with you both in the loss of your sweet boy. I pray you will continue to be comforted by the God of all comfort as you grieve in the days ahead. Wish I lived closer to give an actual hug... but.... extending arms now from Asia.... wrapping them....

love, mandy


Dan & Casey ,
I sit here with tears in my eyes and a loss in my heart for your family and joy for Little Asher. He is with our Father and feeling the warming love of God. My heart breaks for you and the loss that you have . May the days ahead be filled with the love and comfort of the Father above and the comfort to know that Asher sits within his arms. I don't know you and have been keeping up with you thru a friends blog, but I Love and think of you throughout each day. May you continue to be a blessing to the Father. Your love for God and for his goodness have changed my life forever. My love and thoughts are with you. I have a special gift that I would like to send to you at a later time. I will also be donating a book to our local library in Memory of your precious Asher.

Hey Casey and Dan,

I am praying for you today and for the days to come. Asher's story and my nephew (Tucker) story are so very similiar. I am excited to think that your sweet Asher and my sweet Tucker are up in heaven now having a blast together. Though you grieve right now, we grieve with hope in knowing that you will see him again in Heaven! God is good and HIS MERCIES endure forever!!!

I want to say Thank you. God has blessed me so much just by knowing you & Dan. I met you once and felt that you loved me for who I was. Dan God sent you to FPBC not so long ago with a special message that we needed so very much. I wanted to just share some "happy things" with you...
God loves you and He is there with you where ever you are.
God used your family to start a Revival at FPBC!!!
Your faith and love beamed like a lighthouse for us all to see and want for ourselves.
Kids are asking questions about God.
Jon and Julie's daughter was saved about a week or so ago. Praise The LORD!
VBS was this past week 6 children came to know GOD..
Jon shared with us that you needed some extra prayers as tears rolled down our cheeks.
The kids was singing next. The little ones made faces and wiggled. Everyone laughed. God knew we needed that. He will send you laughs and smiles your way so very soon.
The SON is shining over you today.
We love you and can't wait to see you soon.
Prayers are your blanket to snuggle you on these rainy days.
Love in Christ,
David & Elizabeth Gregg


Dearest Casey and Dan,

Praying for you today and the days to come. Words escape me now, but I have the hope of the knowledge that our baby, Isaac, met him at heavens gates and is there too whole with Asher. May His embrace surround you and His peace sustain you.

Love you both,

Amanda Marble-Walker

Casey & Dan... I'm so very sorry. I don't know what else to say other than I don't know what you're going through, but if I could be there right now, I would. Please know I'm there in spirit for you... Love you, Amanda


Dear Casey & Dan,

Our hearts go out to you in this time of, I'm sure, unimaginable grief. We pray God's peace and comfort to overwhelm you. May you know His presence in a new way.

With love and prayers,
Alaina (and family)

Jamie and Tara Dew

Dan and Casey,

Our hearts and prayers have been with you this weekend. We have been following your story through your blog, as well as through Sean & Amy Holderby, and your precious family was lifted up in our service yesterday at Stony Hill Baptist Church. May the God of all comfort, the God who sees you, and the One who loves you... be near to you today. May He hold you close to His bossom and give you strength. We love you and will be praying.

In Him,
Jamie and Tara Dew

Jackie Reece

Just wanted to let you know that we love you and will continue to pray that God will grant you peace and will comfort you through this sad time. God knew what was best for Asher and he will comfort you and be there for you. Be there for each other and help each other get through this.

Love and Prayers,
Jeff and Jackie

Dear Dan & Casey,

We were members at ODBC for a brief season and we knew of you through Angela Gilbreath.
We are so very sorry for the loss of your son but rejoice in the fact that he is now fully restored and in the arms of our Lord and Savior. Your strong faith in all of this is an awesome testimony to the Lord and you are probably touching the lives of so many people:)
May you continue to cling to each other and to Jesus, and may the Lord continue to give you peace.
Take care and God bless.

In Him,

Jenny & Eric Monier

Dan and Casey, I am a friend of Robby and Kathryn's and Kathryn has kept me updated with your story. I am hurting with and for you and praying that God would continue to be your strength in this journey.

Katie Williams

Casey and Dan....I found out at church this morning and cried and cried. You have glorified God throughout this pregnancy and His name has been exhaulted. You have been a light to inspiration and an encouragement. I am so sad I will not be able to be at the Memorial on Thursday because we will be on Lawson's customer trip this week. May God's peace envelop you and carry you through....

Praying for your family!
